Home Building & Renovating, Bankhall House, Cheshire
Bankhall House in Cheshire is a truly stunning traditionally styled home featuring five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a home cinema and a huge swimming pool. The classically inspired house took nearly 2 years to complete and won the prestigious ‘Daily Telegraph Best Traditional House’ award in 2010.
Proud owners David and Margie Edwards have created a truly beautiful home, inside and out, undertaking a luxurious build individually designed to suit their every need.
Due to the truly unique design of this build the totally bespoke nature of Bereco’s products have been the perfect choice. The couple were able to incorporate a variety of window and door designs to complement the traditional style of the house whilst creating large glazing areas to enjoy the beautiful views of the surrounding garden.
The classically inspired house was completed in just 27 weeks and won the prestigious ‘Daily Telegraph Best Traditional House’ award in 2010. The property covers 1,300 m2 and was valued at an impressive £10,000,000 on completion in 2008. The plot originally featured a 1960’s bungalow and due to planning restrictions the house couldn’t be extended too much in terms of footprint so the Edwards decided to dig down, which as you can imagine was a quite a challenge. This innovative idea has created much more living space and has proven a truly unique addition to this impressive home.
The house is truly grand in scale covering 1,300 m2 and was worth a huge £10,000,000 on completion in 2008.
Each element of the build has been carefully thought out with products chosen to mirror the period features of the house. Bereco supplied all the timber windows and doors for the project, creating truly bespoke designs from the Traditional Range to complement the both the external façade of the building and interior décor. The products supplied include French Doors, Entrance Doors, Sliding Sash (Spiral Balance) and Tilt and Turn screens.
The Edwards have chosen large classical window and door designs with a white painted finish which perfectly complements the building. The windows and doors have been designed with original bar detail and feature windows have been created with the addition of curved heads and fanlights. The swimming pool area features elegant French Doors spanning an entire wall, maximising the natural light entering the property. The finished result is simply stunning making all the couples hard work well worth it.
